“An excellent experience”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We booked onto the Sham Shui Po tour and had a very enjoyable few hours. Our guide Silvana was very knowledgable and the trip was as much about the area, the people and the history as it was about the food. This was an area we would probably not have visited without being on this tour and I felt we learnt a lot about the history of Hong Kong - which was just what we wanted. We visited 6 different tasting locations, and although not all of the foods were to our taste, that didn't distract from the overall experience. I absolutely loved the Pineapple bun, and have already found a source in London - I hope they are as good! We felt this was good value for money as all the tastings were included (about £55 each for nearly 4 hours entertainment). If we every get to go back to Hong Kong we will definitely do the other tour.
Many thanks Silvana for making this so enjoyable.

“tasty, informative and entertaining”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Our food tour in Sham Shui Po was an excellent choice. Our guide Silvana took us around to six different places in this area of Hong Kong which we had hardly visited if not for this tour. It was a great pleasure to learn from her a lot about the area and people's every day lives but also about the particular food and the different shop owners we met. It was very informative and entertaining and it was a great experience we do not want to miss. We were given material which shows the walk and the different stops - some of the food was so delicious (the pineapple bun in particular) that we could find easily find the place again and have more of it. Many thanks to Silvana!

“Great food, wonderful guide”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This tour was a great intro to Sham Shui Po. It included foods at 6 locations, from Soybean milk (I tried the dessert rather than the straight milk), Braised goose, egg noodles and HK Milk tea. Thanks to Sylvana (the guide) for making the experience both informative and enjoyable.
Can't wait to try the Central tour.

“Foodie fabulous experience!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

My partner and I brought out of town visitors on the Sham Shui Po tour. We had such a fantastic time that we booked the Central Sheung Wan tour for the following week. The guide on the Sham Shui Po tour really knew her stuff, told great stories and the food choices were very varied, interesting and also really tasty! Although some of my rather elderly european family might not be the most adventurous Asian eaters, they loved it all! The favourite on the Sham Shui Po tour must have been the meats and the freshly prepared pickles at the yummy noodle shop. My other half loved the homemade soy milk shop (real, super fresh made-that-day silky soy milk - nothing like what you buy in regular shops out of a carton!). During the Central tour, the dim sum visit was superb and super fresh and delightfully light as they should be, we lapped up warming (and cooling!) teas and discovered the best locally made chilli paste on the planet! (I've been back three times already to by jars of the stuff..) Highly recommend and we're going to book the next lot of visitors who are coming around Christmas, we liked it that much.

“Central & Sheung Wan Foodie Tour”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have just participated in the Central foodie tour with Silvana as our guide. My husband and I were 100% happy with this experience and especially the food of course. Silvana was a fantastic guide with a vast knowledge of the food and the culture which she imparted to the group in a very professional, courteous and sometimes humorous manner. We would thoroughly recommend this tour and am sorry that we didn't get to do the Kowloon tour also, but will save that for next time.
